What we still need to know about PlayStation 5.

First, while the manufacturer has long clarified that PlayStation 4 games will be compatible on PS5, gamers tempted to buy a PlayStation 5 Digital Edition still do not know what to do with their PS4 games, purchased in physical format. This situation would leave the field open to users who have physical cassettes to resell them and therefore could reduce the purchase price of the games.

The compatibility of PlayStation VR virtual reality headsets also remains to be clarified. As far as we know, Sony is working on a new version of its headphones, but it has not yet said anything about compatibility.

Also, the console was presented and made only in a single storage capacity, maximum 825 GB. This capacity is not large, especially for users who will go to the 100% digital console, which is cheaper.
For the digital version of the console you will need to equip yourself with very special SSDs so as not to lose the reading advantages of the PS5.

How about memory extensions and how much will they cost? We dont know yet, but we can give you a hint, the equivalent from Microsoft and the Xbox Series S | X that will cost around $ 200 for another 512 GB!
